Many thanks as usual Andy!

Read speed will exceed write speed, but remember the disks are shared on the cloud and not on your dedicated, so that will result in slower speeds. 54Mbps is nothing to complain about however.

Just done some speed tests.

Cloud to OVH (internal) - 89.28 Mbps

OVH to Cloud (internal) - 54.48 Mbps

why is OVH to Cloud much lower?

I meant : once it is rolling and it is out of beta

Thanks again Neil
Regarding that question, currently we limit our dedicated servers to 10Mbps when they go over and on our shared hosting we close the hosting account when it exceeds, so we will most likely roll out something similar.

Its a Beta test so it should not be used for production ;-)

If have replied??

English is not my native language and I do not get the meaning of such a phrase. If possible please clarify .

2) The link you sent me does not answer any of my answer. IT only says that almost 45 days ago Oles announced something to be launched ( on Beta) and no one can provide more details than that.

I have used the product myself but I still have questions ( mentioned above).


Many thanks in advance
I have replied to all the questions I could, you need to look under each number.

-Whats the BW for such service ( monthly)?
-Do I get a 5 GB HDD as the mini cloud? ( in case of being able to rent such a thing)

The minicloud is going to be priced at 1.99 (at the time of Oles posting)

2)+ Do all mini clouds come with a guaranteed 256MB + swappable RAM from SSD's?

I am just asking ( BTW, works very very nice)

Default beta MiniCloud

Swap: 0 0 0

3)+Why did I subscribe for the mailing list and I got no response at all? Should the email that I signed in be the same as the one related to the nic handle
SOLVED (Myatu)

Yes you need to confirm the email, there are lots of emails on it.

4)+How about a service in which we could adjust our needs via a web "GUI" and have a final price ( apart from the pre -assigned plans)?

Expandable clouds have been mentioned before, we will look into it. With the RPS you can upgrade at anytime if no downtime, so the Clouds will be expendable between the 3 packages.

5) +Core cloud: I love the concept of ( HA: high availability , redundancy and scalability) . But I do not undestand fully what those 9.99 Euros include. I think that the translation is pretty bad sumed up to the fact the English is not my native lang.


I would like to, but I do not get the idea of becoming a reseller ( and how could I possibly explain you when a box that does any type of activity that does not comply with your TOS or that is reported by illegal activity by a third party).

Can I use Virtual MAC addresses so that you already know what is done by me and what it is done by my (potential) clients?

At the moment there is only one IP address and as mentioned the packages are not set, we are still doing a small beta. When we are ready we will announce the full packages.

6)+I did some tests on a mini cloud and I was impressed. I?o was outstanding . Connectiosn to Europe jaw droppers . Connections to the US: not that impressing but I can't yell at the speeds either as :

.they were within a nice range of accepatability ( close to 1MB).
.I has been using an app ( when executing tests) that eats BW which made results not very objective.

As asked before: do you guys have type of good control when using the VM ESXI of the I/O? I am asking so as I would not like to bother other clients and viceversa.

7)+ Do cloud services come with a (basic) control panel?

You have the control panel in the OVH Manager, which will expand when the packages are launched. You can currently Reboot and Reinstall.

8)+ Would we be able to purchase extra IP's for cloud? Would we be able to assign an IP failover?

Most likely yes, as we offer the service on the RPS.

9)+ETA of cloud services ( not Beta) is about 2 weeks, right? ( as stated by oles)

No news yet, we will let you know.

10)+ Here oles talks about high I/O and/or BW. How can I check if my I?O is hammering your servers? What would be too much BW? Does it count if is 9 to 1 in DL than UL? Does it count whether it is purely French traffic?

COuld I possibly set a number before I reach the limit and request to have my box suspended so I don't have to pay extra?

Its a Beta test so it should not be used for production ;-)
